Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovelies! I hope you all had a fantastic week.

We found a mass in Coco’s mouth on Sunday so unfortunately it’s been a stressful one for me. She’s at the vet’s office today getting a biopsy and x-rays so we won’t know for sure what it is until next week but I’m trying my best to stay positive. Right now I’m finding comfort in giving her extra big hugs and feeding her plain yogurt mixed pumpkin because I know how happy it makes her.


Yep, I’ll be hanging with that face as much as possible this weekend. :)

Whatever your plans are, I hope it’s a fun and relaxing one for you. In the meantime,  settle in for a collection of my recent favorite finds!

Favorite Zoodles: Crispy Honey Lemon Cauliflower on Chili and Garlic Stir Fried Zoodles. Who needs chicken when you have crispy cauliflower? Seriously. If this doesn’t make you crave veggies, I don’t what will.



Favorite Getaway: Carmel, California. Next month will be our one year wedding anniversary so we’re planning a short getaway to Carmel! I’m looking forward to hiking in Big Sur, tasting lots of good wine, and taking in the romantic sunsets with my love. If you’ve been and you have any recommendations for us, I would love for you to share them with me!

McWay Falls, Big Sur


Favorite Spring Outfit: Red Maxi Skirt. I’ve been on the hunt for a cute red maxi skirt to wear wine-tasting in Carmel for several weeks now. I haven’t found one I like yet but I love how effortless it looks with a denim jacket.



Favorite DIY: How to Grow Your Own Avocado Plant. We eat avocadoes like they’re going out of style and it can get a little pricey sometimes so I love this idea to grow your own.



Favorite Healthy Lunch: Mayo-Free Avocado Egg Salad. Speaking of avocadoes, how awesome do they sound mixed in egg salad? I bet the touch of fresh lemon juice really takes it over the top!


Favorite Tutorial: How to Make Dairy-free Coconut Yogurt. Giving up yogurt would definitely be the hardest part of going dairy-free for me but I have to say, this all-natural homemade alternative makes it look pretty darn easy.



Favorite Hairstyle: Lived-in Waves. It’s been over two months since I cut my hair short and I still haven’t figured out how to style it any other way than straight. I’m hoping with this tutorial and a little practice that I can get it to look this cute!


Favorite Healthy Snack: No-Bake Carrot Cake Energy Bites. I love carrot cake like no other so being able to eat it on a daily basis without feeling guilty sounds like a dream come true. Give me all the balls!



Favorite Drink: Pistachio Matcha Milk. I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw this. Best idea ever.



Favorite Appetizer: Goat Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Strawberries with Candied Walnuts and Balsamic Glaze. This beautiful appetizer looks like the perfect way to welcome strawberry season and would be great for an Easter party. I know I couldn’t resist eating one if I tried!
